Cool 2703WS Rockwood Bedroom Slide Issues

I have a new 2014 2703WS that I went out to prep this morning for a trip next week. I could not get the bedroom slide to come out. pushing the in side of the switch I hear the motor try to pull it it but when I try to make it move out I get nothing.
Funny thing is that I was able to get it to slide out last night when I was working in the trailer. the two other slides are working and I have good battery power. No fuses are blown and all breakers are on along with the battery disconnect.
I double-checked all the inline fuses and I have 12 Volts at the slide switch in question.
Any one else have this issue?

If you have a manual handle, try to open using manually a bit and then using motor.

I'll try that and see if it works. Worse case - It's still under warranty I'll have to tow her 16 miles to a service department come Saturday.
Sigh...Funny thing is it was working day before yesterday.

Try having someone hold the button down briefly while you lightly push on the slide from the inside. We have been very lucky and not had any problems yet, but I am justing waiting for some kind of problem to pop up.
Love our mobile cottage.

There is no crank for the wardrobe closet.. The controller for it is located by the water heater; It may have a code blinking on it. I don't know how to make a link to instructions but you can read the manual that came with the camper to trouble shoot it.

Went and checked the codes on the controller... one green flash, 6 red flashes..
Short in motor one! Already called the repair department at the dealership and they have given me an appointment for Friday Afternoon.
Thanks for all the help folks

Resolution At Last

So thanks to all who replied.
Here is the cause and resolution:
The wire that supplies power to the motors on the wardrobe life had come loose from the clip that secures them under the slide. When I opened the slide it was fine but when I closed the slide the wire caught on the underside of the slide out and it pulled loose causing a short. The repair man reran the wire correctly and replaced the motor that got fried because of this.
Quote the dealership "This will not happen again".
